Silk'n Flash & Go Express $299
IPL Hair Remover
-The Silk'n Flash & Go is safe and effective on most hair and skin colors and combinations.
-Silk'n Flash & Go uses IPL or Intense Pulsed Light to disable the hair follicle by heating the hair root with light energy. Other brands of hair removers use either IPL or Laser light to heat the pigment in the hair root. When comparing the intensity of light output between an IPL device (like Silk'n or Venus Silk Extra) and a laser device, like Tria, you must also consider the size of the treatment area. Venus Silk Expert's IPL window is larger than Tria's laser output window but the Laser offers 3 times more light energy per pulse. The extra energy kills the hair follicle faster meaning fewer treatments are needed for permanent hair removal. The bottom line is do you want to spend more time on each treatment and use the laser fewer times or spend less time on each application but apply more treatments.
-Silk'n Flash & Go has no built in skin sensor that automatically adjusts the IPL to the correct level for your skin tone. Both Flash & Go styles are designed to be used on the lowest power setting for your first use. After the first use, you use it on the highest power level you can without feeling discomfort
-Because Silk'n Flash & Go is an IPL unit, it may not work as well as a laser for those with light hair.
-Silk'n Flash & Go will only flash when tip of unit is touching your skin. Both Silk'n Flash & Go styles have glide mode which allows you to glide the laser while it pulses continuously on the skin saving time on larger areas.
-Runs on household current.
-Silk'n Flash & Go Express provides approximately 300,000 pulses and the Silk'n Flash & Go Compact provides approximately 150,000 pulses
*The Silk'n Flash & Go Compact pulses at a slower rate than the Express.
-The Silk'n Flash & Go Express costs $299.99 and the Silk'n Flash & Go compact costs $199.99.

The Silk'n Flash & Go Hair Remover is available in two styles - The Express in blue and the compact in pink. Let's review the differences.
Both models use IPL (Intense Pulsed Light). IPL is not a laser but works exactly the same using high intensity light to inhibit hair growth. Neither unit has a skin sensor to automatically set the light intensity - Tria Laser and Venus Silk Expert both have automatic skin detection that sets light intensity according your skin color. Both have Glide Mode which allows you to move the unit while flashing as long as it stays in contact with your skin. Both have 5 power settings. Both Flash & Go styles are designed to be used on the lowest power setting for your first use. After the first use, you use it on the highest power level you can without feeling discomfort. This provides ultra fast, permanent hair removal.
The differences between the Express and the Compact are price, life of IPL element and treatment time. The Compact $199 provides 150,000 pulses at a slow pulse rate while the Express $299 provides 300,000 pulses at a fast pulse rate.
The Sens Epil Express stands out as the easy choice. Faster treatment times due to the larger treatment area and more rapid pulses add to the Silkn's appeal. A full leg treatment in 15 minutes or less is very fast for a home hair removal device. today.
